Coughing yellow gunk

Common Questions and Answers about Coughing yellow gunk


Avatar n tn It’s been ten days and I’m still coughing up this gunk. I went in to see my regular doctor yesterday but he didn’t do anything about it either. He just listened to my lungs and said that it didn’t sound like I had pneumonia. Then told me to stop taking one of my blood pressure pills and come back in 30 days and that was it. So in other words, it was a total waste of time to see him and as usual he was a know nothing idiot. Any idea of what’s wrong with me and what I should do about it?
Avatar f tn On Antibiotics, have a much more horrible cough, wheezing and crackling going on. Spitting up yellow/green gunk. It never ends.
Avatar n tn No fever no aches or pain, just a bad head cold, with coughing. My snot was very bright yellow throughout the entire cold. Now that my nose isnt congested anymore and I can finally breathe normally, I now have this yellow nose bleed. I am going to be calling my ENT tomorrow to see what he says since I have already seen him. Maybe my throat infection turned into a sinus infection.
Avatar m tn My girlfriend has 3 dogs, 1 of which is a female blue heeler (Tyler) about 4-5 years old. Tyler started developing a cough in mid-August, 2013. She has been coughing for the past 6 months. The 2 other dogs are in perfect health and have not developed a cough. I have outlined below the steps that have occurred during the past 6 months. - Month 1 - Normal coughing with a foamy white substance coming up after cough. She eats grass. She was prescribed antibiotics and small strength of steroids.
Avatar n tn I had this same yellow problem just now, yellow fluid leaking from my RIGHT nostril. I'd had it one time before but forget which nostril it was that time. I'd had a migraine the other night in which the pain was mostly concentrated on the right side of my face.
Avatar m tn I get a sore throat (not tonsils but when you swallow) I now go straight on antibiotics and use Bricanyl inhaler although it doesnt seem to have much effect except to cause alot of mucus coughed up from the lungs. It causes me to have spasm coughing and if I cannot control this to 3 or 4 coughs my windpipe closes over making it hard to breath in or out. The last one about 2 years ago stopped me breathing in and out completely for 10 to 15 seconds and I thought I had bought it.
Avatar n tn thank you so much Barb would it help the chest too hugs star
Avatar m tn I guess I have asked already about throat congestion ( dirty brown/yellow gunk) and the need to get rid of it. It inhibits my breathing and creates severe coughing. Any thoughts on how to diminish the gunk so I breath easier and sleep better??????????????
Avatar m tn Taking an expectorant rather than a cough suppressant will help loosen the gunk. Taking deep breaths and forcefully coughing on exhalation will help loosen and bring up secretions. It is important to monitor for worsening infection: fever, chills, difficulty breathing and increased mucous production. Puffer medications that open airways to improve breathing, lessen wheezing and decrease inflammation are often prescribed.
Avatar m tn No fever but my throat is swollen and red, coughing up yellow gunk and my voice is nearly gone. Would the symptoms typically show up sooner than 5-6 weeks or am I still at risk? Obviously this is terrifying and I regret my actions but it doesn't help the anxiety. Thanks for your help.
1301836 tn?1305625415 christmas eve i felt so ill and when i had a coughing fit i couldnt breath and was heaving as the gunk on my chest was so hard to get up, i obviously dont bend in the middle so had no control over the whole body spasm thing was going on and suddenly i was stood in a load of yellow liquid, the books all said if it were my waters it would be golden yello and smell sweet...i couldnt smell a thing and was so upset i couldnt even bring myself to ask hubby to take a whiff!
1939607 tn?1324292900 I use saline 3 times a day to dehydrate it and I inhale on viks to relieve the pressure i am experiencing. An extra worry is that my mucus is thick and yellow/green. In the past days (and usually when i get a cold), it was watery and transparent/whitish. I called my doctor and he said that it might be indicative of a secondary infection like a sinus infection. He told me to give it another 48 hours and if it doesn't get better, i should go and get checked.
Avatar n tn When it is productive, it is only a piece of phelgm about the size of a BB. The phelgm is usually very rigid and has a greenish yellow color. I have taken Zithromax and Omni-Cef more than once during this period, but still produce the same phelgm. Once or twice a week I lose my voice if I talk for over a few minutes. I suspect that I have a low grade upper respiratory infection, and plan to have a culture run on the phelgm, hoping to find a specific antibiotic.
Avatar n tn Well she says to drink plenty of fluids and to expect a cough in the near future. Sure enough the cough comes no less than a day later. I start coughing up this mean green stuff and yellow stuff. Well, with that said, the cough lasted about 3 weeks. I thought I had lung cancer and was doomed. Until, I noticed everyone on my campus started coughing to (not really, but allot of people) and I hear that there is a case of bronchitis going around.
Avatar n tn I also started sneezing last night (and once got a little of a pale yellow gunk from my throat when I sneezed-the rest of the time it's clear) I wasn't taking the Allegra but started today (Me and pseudophedrine aren't the greatest friends but I'm tolerant-it revs me up) I take the vicotuss at night but wake up after a couple of hours with what I can best describe as a hangover. Fever is going between below normal to 99.5. Should I be concerned with the amount of crackling?
Avatar n tn I went back to the clinic today and the doctor gave me antibiotics after I told him I coughed up some green gunk. The doctor said my lungs sounded clear. However the amount of pieces of lime green sticky mucus I have been coughing up has increased. My main concern is that I have pneumonia. I have been hospitalized for pneumonia three times and have received the vaccine.
Avatar m tn 2 and that was cause my heat was wide open. No weightloss no fever, My symptoms now is just sneezing,coughing up green gunk, And very bad sore throat that feels better in afternoon and way worse in the morning. I do not notice any nodes to be inlarged to my end but the front of my neck kinda to the right side feels like a sore muscle tht did not start till i had this heavy coughing going on.
Avatar f tn I began feeling worse- exhausted, confusion, tremors, horrible cough- coughing up yellowish gunk. Went to my intern and was told it was probably repeated viral infections and he took blood. Blood tests came back normal (neg for mono). Went to a care now on Memorial day and was diagnosed with bronchitis. Was given Cefdinir which did nothing to help.
437415 tn?1211833156 I was coughing up yucky stuff until today and now I can't cough it up anymore. Last fall I had to go to the hospital for pneumonia and I will do anything not to get in that shape again. Actually it's more likely this is bronchial because instead of yellow my phlegm (isn't that the nastiess word in the universe?) is green, but really really thick. I am really not trying to gross you out I just want you to have all of the facts so you can give me some advice.
Avatar n tn Last week, she started coughing up yellow gunk, and we called her pulmonologist immediately. He called in a prescription for Levaquin 750. That seemed to calm things down. The following day, she was doing okay for her, and seemed to feel a little bit better. Her O2 sat was constant at 91-92 on 4L and the highest temp she had was 99. She called me after we laid down to go to sleep and I checked her 02 sat, which was then 85.
Avatar f tn So I'm guessing my sore throat (bronchitis) and ear infection would be down to the dirty water here. I have never had an ear infection before. And this sore throat coughing/clearing alot of greeny gunk. Last night I couldn't sleep as I was in so much pain with my ear infection. I guess the slight raise in temperature would be down to the ear infection? I am however concerned about the infected hair fonicles on my legs? If not HIV,what would cause that?
242516 tn?1368227505 fever, pus on tonsils (exudate), tender lymph nodes in front of your neck (anterior cervical lymphadenopathy), and lack of cough (no coughing). If so, treat with antibiotics that are more narrow-spectrum such as penicillin since there's virtually no resistance to penicillin by strep in the community. If less than 3 of 4 of these signs are positive, then wait for your strep test or throat culture to show a bacterial infection before taking antibiotics.
Avatar f tn After 3 weeks to a month, it appears my Mother and I are over the worst of it. I believe it was some form of bronchitis. At least that is what the symptoms were like. I had the heavy cough that made all parts of my body hurt. Some of the symptoms continue to linger. If I get the dry cough a few times, I take a cough drop "ricola" and stop it. The last 4 or 5 nights I was able to sleep. Before that, I would wake up coughing after less than an hour on my side.
209987 tn?1451939065 Sorry for the confusion. I have both...a sinus infection and a lung infection. Yellow "gunk" coming out of nose and coughing up yellow as well. What I meant by the garlic not "reacting" properly to the IBS and GERD is that garlic ( by any means ) makes me very gassy...which makes life unbearable...makes the stomach worse than usual. lol I'm not sure if my lungs and sinuses are going through a bacteria, fungal, or viral infection...
Avatar m tn With the methods I will show you, the yellow and green purulence, which we better know as snot, will be removed from your nasal passages. When the infected snot is removed from your head, the cold viruses, bacteria, and perhaps the fungi will not have a comfortable environment to thrive, multiply, and release the poisons which inflame and destroy the otherwise healthy red mucus membranes in your nose and sinuses. Doctors have difficulty treating sinusitis caused by fungi.
Avatar m tn I personally think, from my own experience of being unbelievably sick from a car accident, that since you've had diarrhea and weight loss and yellow stool, this means that your body has run into the ditch. You are wore slam out. You are not getting your nutrients and this is making you feel really down and ruined. So, I can tell you that if they can get your digestive issues straight (the H.
Avatar f tn People avoid me all the time because they think im sick, and worst of all it sometimes keeps me up at night because I cant stop coughing. I fear I am going to have this going on forever. Good Luck to everyone here, I wish I had info on how to solve the problem but so far i have found nothing.
Avatar m tn The phlegm used to be clear until when the sinus problem started and it just keeps going bacl to my throat . Colour yellow/green. I alwasy have to cough on purpose to relieve the phlegm like 100 times a day. I have gone also to GUM clinic for STD tests and all fine. Did vitamin, iron, B12 and throid tests and all fine. I will see my Dr. tmr and ENT when I get back home in December.
Avatar n tn pukes at night after he's been laying down for a few hours then wakes up coughing and pukes alot everywhere! He has been on 3 different antibiotics and still does it< they thought maybe drainage took xrays on chest and sinus's and said sinus looked hazey but could be because he was crying during xray..he is now on the same antibiotic he was on at first and still pukes at night. He is fine all day sometimes pukes in morning...
